Seven Layer Dip with Guacamole

The best bart about game day is the game food. And this Seven Layer Dip with Guacamole has to be a part of your game day spread.

Chips and dip are always a go-to appetizer. For this classic version, I kept with the must-have ingredients, but mixed it up with a little spice and used some fresh ingredients to brighten up the dish.

And the one thing that makes this recipe the best…

Crispy Zucchini Fritters with Lemon and Basil

Summer is almost over and I’m not ready for pumpkin-spiced everrrythinggg. With the move back to NYC and getting organized, I didn’t have much time to enjoy lazy summer beach days or picnics in the park. But there are a few weeks left. And I think these Crispy Zucchini Fritters can make summer last a little bit longer.

So, about these CRISPY fritters. Don’t tell me I’m alone here, but does anyone else love the crispy edges of roasted potatoes or the buttery, crusty rim of a fresh pancake? yummm—you know what I’m talking about. These fritters have all the crispy edges and crusts you could possibly want.

Red Lentil Hummus

This red lentil hummus is my new favorite snack. My secret ingredient to this classic dip uses lentils instead of traditional chickpeas for a creamy, whipped spread.

Guacamole with Black Beans

Guacamole is one of my favorite dips – it’s creamy, packed with spicy flavor, and is always a crowd favorite. This guacamole with black beans is a new twist on the classic version. The black beans add a chewy bite to the creamy dip, plus add flavor, and give this healthy dip some added protein.

Whether you are making this dip for the big game or simply preparing it for an easy appetizer, this dip is a winner. The bright lime juice, fragrant cilantro, and spicy jalapeño are perfect mixed in with the the ripe avocados and black beans.
